Park Commissioners Report 

To the Board of Selectmen and Voters of Chelmsford 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts 

Greetings i 

The Park Commissioners submit their report herewith as follows: 

Our board meet early in 19U0 and organised with Walter Merrill as chairman, 
Claude Harvey as secretary and Michael Welsh as third member. We have carried 
on the care and upkeep of the Public Parks of the town as in the past years, 
as well as making some improvements where needed. 

The care of the parks this year has been divided the same as last with 
Walter Merrill having the center, Michael Welsh the North and the South, and 
West and Westlands by Claude Harvey, 

We had the misfortune to lose one of the maple trees on the Center Common 
due to a leakage in the gas main on Westford St. This was taken up with the 
Gas Company who repaired the gas main and rf placed the tree and shrubs free 
of any cost to the town. 

This year we shall have to ask the town to purchase a new flag to replace 
the one we have at the Center which has got beyond mending. 

The matter of installing town water at the Westlands (H. S. Perham Park) 
for sprinkling in dry season has been mentioned and while we wish to cooperate 
with the voters we feel that we should refrain from taking on any extras until 
such time as the voters feel that they can increase annually a sufficient amount 
of funds to meet the extra demands required. 

We wish to thank the townspeople for their help and cooperation with us in 
carrying on the work which was placed in our hands by vote of the town, and hope 
that the work has been carried on aocording to their wishes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Walter H. Merrill, Chair man 
Claude A. Harvey, Sec'y 
Michael J. Welsh 

Park Commissioners 

FOREST WARDEN REPORT 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen 

Gentlemen: 

With the exception of February and December every month during 19U0 had its 
regular quota of grass and wood fires, totaling 12U actual fires and over 20 
investigations of calls made from the Tower. Over 60 of these fires were ex- 
tinguished by your Forest Warden without any additional helo. 

Fires - Causes 

The main causes of fires are three, viz.- carelessness, incinerators, and 

incendiarism. 

Carelessness- Carelessness includes tossing oigaret and cigar butts etc 
from vehicles on our highways, placing incinerators (so called) in or 
near highly inflammable material, such as dry grass, brush piles or rubbish 

Incinerators, These devices of many and varied types are the direct cause of 
many of our fires, and within the past few years several buildings have 
been damaged or destroyed by fires from this source. All types of in- 
cinerators, including open air fireplaces, must, in order to be used 
without obtaining a permit, be oovered with a heavy wire screen of not 
greater than one quarter inch mesh, while in use. Wide mesh wire baskets 
are not permissible and require a permit. 

69 



Inoinerators (Cont.) Many fires could be avoided in the course of a year 

if these devices were not used on windy days. 
Incendiarism- Conclusive evidence has been obtained in regard to this class 

of fire6, of whioh there are many in the town during the past year. 

Further details will probably be available in the near future. 

Assistance at fires- Material assistance was rendered by the several fire 

departments in each of the different districts at various times. The state 
units also gave valuable aid at other times which is duly appreciated. 
The most threatening fire of the year occured in October and except for the 
timely and efficient assistance rendered by Chief E. W. Bartlett and one of 
his trucks from Billerica we would undoubtedly have had the most serious 
as well as most costly fire of the year. 

Care in regard to fires in 19U1- During the ensuing year the cooperation of 
every citizen is needed in order to keep fires at a minimum. The new 
rearmament program will and already is making an extreme shortage of help 
needed at fires. Several of our most experienced Tower operators including 
our own looal operator, as well as local Deputy Wardens are now on this new 
work and will not be available this year. 

Equipment- As is generally known our present forest truck owing to its extreme 
age and hard usage is in poor mechanical condition. It is not rugged 
enough to handle any more load which is needed in water capacity. 
The portable pump and engine purchased two years ago has been reconditioned 
this winter and is now in first class condition. Parts and labor for this 
work taken from money left from la6t years appropriation. 

Appropriation Balance- There is a balance of appropriation returned to the 
town of $27 .1+U and there was also returned to the town $26.75 collected 
from various persons having illegal or unattended fires. 

Respectfully submitted, 
H. M. Sturtevant 
Forest Warden 

REPORT OF CHELMSFORD W. P. A. 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen 
Town of Chelmsford, Massachusetts 

Honorable Sirs: 

As W, P. A. Sponsor's Agent of the Town of Chelmsford, I herewith submit 
to you and the citizens of the town a report of the W.P.A. activities in the 
Town of Chelmsford for the year I9I4Q • 

In August 1939 the Chelmsford Water District sponsored and financed the 
construction of a 500,000 gal. re-inforced concrete water reservoir on Robin 
Hill. This reservoir is connected with the old reservoir on Robin Hill which 
has a storage capacity of approximately 225,000 gals, making a total storage 
capacity of approximately 725,000 gals. This project was completed in June I9J4O. 

During the year 19*40 we also had a road project which included 17 roads 
in various parts of the town. The work on these roads consisted of widening 
graveling, rolling and oiling. Many of those streets were narrow and crooked; 
and difficult to plow out in the winter. New drainage was added to some of 
these streets and on others damaged culverts were rebuilt. 

The Varney Playground Project was started and has been temporarily 
suspended. A very extensive filling and grading job was done on the grounds 

70 



and a beautiful granite entrance arch was constructed as a memorial tribute to 
Dr. Varney. When work is resumed a memorial to Dr. Edwards will be erected; 
as it wa6 through a sum of money left by him that financed the greater part of 
the work done on this Project. There remains to be done under this project 
the erecting of apnrox. 600 lin. ft. chain link fence, IL&Q cu. yds. of loam 
for the outfield which will also be fertilised and seeded. Some ornamental 
trees are to be planted and park benches built to accomodate the public. 
On the Highland Ave. Project tennis courts were built and back stops for the 
same. A baseball back stop was also erected. 

During 19^0 our Sewing Project varied greatly. On January 1st. 19U0 there 
were 11 women employed and by June 15, 19U0 it had been reduced to 5. In Nov. 
I9I4Q that quota was increased to 9 and at different intervals it was increased 
so that at the present time we have 16 women on the sewing project. 
The Survey Project also underwent the same changes. On January 1st. 191+0 there 
were 11 employed on that project and as spring, approached the usual seasonal 
reduction in quota took place and by June 15, there were only 6 employed. There 
are at the present time 9 men employed on the Survey Project. On January 1st. 
19i|0 there were 117 men employed on our manual projects and by June 19U0 that 
number had been reduced to 29 • 

On June 2^, 19U0 our Water Project sponsored by the Chelmsford Center 
Water Dist. was started. Due to laok of funds available to finance the Mass. 
W.P.A. no new assignments were to be made until Oct. and as we had 64 miles 
of mains to lay in various roads, as well as constructing a 250,000 gal. steel 
storage tank, it was necessary to import a number of men from Lowell to operate 
the project efficiently, so that from time to time that number was increased to 
135* That number has been reduced so that at the present time there are 91 
Lowell men on the Water Projeot and 76 Chelmsford men. Approximately ^0 more 
Lowell men are to be transfered to Lowell in the near future. Very favorable 
progress has been made on our Water Project despite the great amount of ledge 
and rock encountered. 

The projects available at the present time for operation during the year 
19U1 are as follows: 

The completion of our Water Projeot, which will be completed by spring. 

The Comoletion of the Varney Playground Project. 

The reconstruction of roads in various parts of the town. 

The continuation of the Sewing and Survey Project and the opening of the 
High School Athletic Projeot. 

The latter should be one of great interest to all citizens of the town, as 
it is one that will combine into one continuous athletic field, the McFarlin 
and High School grounds, which will include tennis courts, regulation baseball 
field, football field, volley ball courts and regulation Softball field and back 
stops for the same. The field will al6o be enclosed by a chain link fence with 
a gate and when completed should make one of the best playgrounds in New England, 

We have a Moth Project that has been approved in Washington but at the 
present time the Government does not feel very enthusiastic about Moth Projects 
and the probabilities are that no Moth Projects will be operated during the 
year 19U1. 

I wish at this time to thank the Board of Seleotmen, the Supt. of Streets 
and all others who in any way contributed toward making the W.P.A. in Chelmsford 
a success.

time of application and materials to use. Visits were made to a large number 
of orchardists in the town giving the growers personal aid. Fruit meetings 
were held in neighboring towns where the growers might go and obtain information 
on orchard practices. 

Judges were furnished for the Grange Fair. 

A series of upholstery meetings were held this past fall for the homemakers 
in Chelmsford. Great interest was shown in this work.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH 

To the Citizens of the Town of Chelmsfordt 

It affords this Board great pleasure to present its report for the year 
19UQ. 

Shortly after the town meeting we organised for the year with Raymond H. 
Greenwood as Chairman, Edmund J. Weloh as Secretary and Donald C. Knapp, the 
newly elected member. It might be well at this time for the Board to convey 
our very best wishes to Mr. George A. McNulty, who for some seventeen years 
served as a member of this Board, and during that long period carried out his 
duties in a creditable manner. Due to ill health it was impossible for him 
to be a candidate for re-election. u e should be proud of the record of service 
that he has given the citizens of our town. 

Aside from conducting the routine business of the Department in an efficient 
manner, we had other matters pertaining to the general health of the community 
to command our attention, and it is the opinion of the Board that we have 
handled these matters in a manner, whioh we believe to be for the best interests 
of the town. 

Perhaps the most serious situation, was the deplorable condition of Beaver 
Brook running through the centre part of the town. For a great number of years 
sewage has been emptying into this brook from several souroes, namely single 
dwellings, large apartment houses, factories, etc* Your Board for the past 
three years has given considerable of its time in solving this problem, a good 
many times meeting with considerable difficulty, but finally succeeded in 
removing all contributing factors. To the many people who had legitimate com- 
plaints in re this situation, we are pleased to report that this condition no 
longer exists. 

During the summer of the past year we deemed it our duty to have the water 
of Crystal Lake in the north section analysed for possible contamination etc. 
In order to secure prompt results in this matter we engaged the services of a 
reputable chemist, without cost to the town, to conduct this analysis. Two 
members of the Board accompanied the chemist while he made his examination. 
Five samples of the water was taken at different points of the lake, analysed 
and the result made known to us within forty eight hours. On the basis of his 
report it was the opinion of the majority of the Board that the water of Crystal 
Lake was unfit for bathing. Immediately after we warned the people of this town 
against bathing in these waters, certain forces began working to undermine our 
authority, and for what particular reason, is still a mystery to us. 
The State Department of Public Health was called by persons outside this dept. 
and a report issued from their office, not coinciding with ours. In order 
to perfect a clearer understanding in the minds of our people, we wish to state 
at this time that it is not necessary for the local Board to call in the State 
Dept. of Publio Health for anything but advice. Consequently whatever their 
findings may be in matters is only rendered as to what their opinion might be* 
As we have told the oitisens in the past, we are performing our duties in your 
interests, and your interests alone, and not for any oertain few or oliques. 

We also found at the time of the examination that the bathhouse located at 
the bathing beach was being used for a W.P.A. storehouse, instead of the purpose 
for whioh it was intended. We ordered it open and it so remained for the duration 
of the summer season. As a result of all this and on the advice and guidance of 
our physioian to the Board from the north section, we shall see to it that be- 
fore the bathing season opens this year, that this water measures up to health 
standards, or if not this lake will be closed for bathing purposes. 

73 



In the matter of appointments that we have to make eaoh and every year we 
made no changes. The Milk Inspector, Meat Inspector, Plumbing Inspector, Agent 
of the Board and Physicians are performing their duties splendidly. 

During the early part of last year we met with the Finance Committee to 
discuss our budget for the year* In view of our running expenses for the 
previous year we saw fit to increase the budget by a few hundred dollars, in 
order to save us appearing before the townspeople in a special town meeting and 
asking for more funds. For some reason or other that honorable board saw fit 
to deorease the budget, thereby forcing us to ask for an additional appropriation 
before the expiration of the year. 

We have received approximately the same amounts of money in reimbursements 
as of the previous year, with the exception of the sale of wood alcohol licenses 
which has been increased. 

We again call to the attention of the people of the town the vital and im- 
portant necessity of the collection of waste and rubbish. We have studied this 
matter thoroughly and have come to the conclusion that this town must appropriate 
a certain sum of money, or some other means, to properly cope with this situation. 
During the year we published and called for public bids, in order to acquaint 
ourselves with what sum of money would be necessary for the handling of a problem 
of this sort. We received upwards of ten or more ranging in price amounts from 
#5000.00 to #1*800.00. Reviewing this matter which faces this Board at the present 
time; we find that: Due to a considerable increase in the building of homes in 
various parts of the town, insufficient collecting of garbage by 1 or 2 private 
collectors, the dumping of rubbish everywhere but where it should be dumped, the 
non-use of the town dumps— forces us to bring this question to the townspeople 
for disposition. Consequently we have had placed in the annual warrant an article 
calling for a certain sum of money, to meet this vital measure, with the sincere 
hope that you will act favorably upon it. 

As in the past we again extend a cordial invitation to all the citizens to 
feel free at any time to call upon us for service, or to favor us with their 
presence at our meetings, which are held the second Tuesday of each month.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH AGENT AND SCHOOL NURSE 

Mr. Raymond Greenwood, Chairman 
Board of Health, Chelmsford, Mass. 

Dear Sirs: 

Following are the diagnosed contagious diseases reported for the year 191*0. 

Chicken Pox 5 

Measles 11 

Scarlet Fever • 1 

Undulant Fever 1 

76 



Pulmonary T.B J 

Pneumonia, Lobar 8 

Dog Bite , 12 

Whooping Cough. 2 

I feel that the parents and teachers will agree with me in saying that 
children with symptoms of disease should not be in school, unless it is certain 
that they have no disease to communicate to others. Because they are so common, 
many people do not consider a cold or sore throat a disease. A child who is 
sick with a oold or sore throat has no business in school, since he is in no 
condition for school work and may communicate his disease to his fellow students. 
His cold may not be a cold (if I may express it), but the beginning of measles, 
or influenza or of pneumonia, and his sore throat may be the beginning of scarlet 
fever or diptheria. Not only will the recovery of the child be hastened by proper 
care at home but the total illness in the school will be reduced by such isolation, 
Children who are absent from school five days or more must have a certificate from 
their doctor or board of health before returning to school. 

In may, 19^0, diptheria immunization clinics were held at the Centre Town 
Hall with the school physicians— Dr. George E. Carriel and Dr. Arthur G. Scoboria 
in attendance. 

The number of pre-school children immunised 35 

The number of school children immunized .......152 

I am sure that most of the parents are beginning to realize the necessity 
of having their children immunized against diptheria and hope in the future they 
will continue to take advantage of these clinics. 

A dental clinic has been hsld at some school each Wednesday of the school 
year. Dr. Charles Farrington, the school dentist has examined the pupils, and 
estimates of the work to be done, have been sent home. 

During the month of November a pre-school olinic and well-child conference 
was held at both the Centre and North Town halls in order that parents might have 
an opportunity to present their problems. The examining physicians were Dr. 
George E. Carriel and Dr. Arthur G. Scoboria. I know that the townspeople will 
agree with me in saying that the school physicians have taken a great interest 
in behalf of the school and pre-school children and have devoted much time to 
them. 

All pupils were given a physical examination during the months of September 
and October by the school physicians. Later the boys wishing to play in the foot- 
ball team were given examinations, as well as those boys and girls desiring to 
join the basketball team. 

The report of the school tuberculosis clinic is as follows:

In December the town was loaned an audiometer from the state. Miss Aura 
Kepler, R.N. of the State Department of Public Health assisted me in testing and 
retesting the hearing of the school children. Parents of those children having 
defective ears are being notified and I trust they will take steps to have these 
defects remedied if possible in the near future.

This fund is being used to advantage in a number of different cases which

I would like to thank the following for their part in providing or distrib- 
uting Christmas baskets and toys to needy people— Lowell Lodge of Elks, Gun and 
Rod Club, Garden Club, Lupien's Farm, Union Church Fund, Girl Scouts, Welfare 
Dept., and the Chelmsford Police. 

In closing, let me say I wish that in the future there will continue to be 
attitudes of sympathy and understanding toward scientific methods of investigatior 
in personal and community problems, and that there will be developed a feeling of 
responsibility for one's own well being to the end that the health of the com- 
munity may be broadened and strengthened. 

I sincerely acknowledge with many thanks the kind help and hearty cooperatior 
that I have received from the Board of Health members, Mr. Wright, Mr. Bums and 
the various officials of the other departments with whom I have come in contact.

TOWN FOREST COMMITTEE REPORT 

To the Board of Selectmen 
Chelmsford, Mass. 

On May lU, 19U0 your Town Forest Committee held its organisation meeting 
and voted that Luther W. Faulkner be the chairman. It was decided to hold a 
later meeting at which time the committee with other interested townspeople and 
offioers could meet and disouss with Harris A. Reynolds, Secretary of the Mass. 
Forest and Park Ass'n. the advantages of a systematic, cooperative forest plannin 

On May 23th such a meeting was held by the committee with Mr. Reynolds and 
members of. the Board of Selectmen, Assessors, Planning Board, Forest Warden and 
Finance Committee where general discussion brought out the fact that 121 Massachu 
setts towns who have adopted the Town Forest Plan have 36,000 acres set aside 

78 



for town forest and 6,500,000 trees planted. It was also decided at this meeting 
along with the distribution of 100 Town Forest pamphlets that some methods of a 
general education of the publio was needed if we are to be foresighted in replac- 
ing what man and the climates have destroyed. 

Your committee cannot go forward with plans unless some of the many acres 
of useless land is made available for Town Forest purposes. It is thought de- 
sirable that if this is done we go ahead slowly in a small way with a little done 
each year and under a State Forestry Departments now compulsory five year plan.

REPORT OF WESTLANDS SCH00LH0USE (ADDITION) COMMITTEE 

The following is the report of the special committee appointed by the 
Moderator at the last annual Town meeting to investigate and report to the present 
annual Town meeting the need for an addition to the sohoolhouse presently located 
in the Westlands. 

This committee first met on April 22, I9I4O when Mr. Clifford Hartley was 
elected Chairman and Mr. Donald A. Dunsford, Secretary. The Chairman thereupon 
read to the Committee the following figures showing the increase in the assessed 
property valuations of precinct 6 between 1937 and 1939 and of the rest of the 
Town for the same period. 

In 1937 the total valuation of real and personal properties for the whole 
town was $6,U9U,630.00. In 1939 this total had risen to $6,870,070.00. 
This represents an increase of 5% in the property valuations for the whole town* 
In 1937 the total valuations of real and personal properties for precinct 6 was 
1785,135.00. In 1939 this figure was $1,01+9,830.00. This represents an inorease 
of $2&*,3U5.00 or 33$. This increase in precinct 6 further represents 70$ of the 
total increase of valuation for the entire town. Further figures read to the 
Committee showed that precinct 6, with less than one-sixth of the voters, paid 
more than one- third of the increase in the town expenses. 

Altogether this Committee held five meetings during which it considered 
further figures relating to the attendance of the Westlands school between the 
years 1928 and 19U0. It was shown that in 1928 the total attendance was UjU, 
which was the number for whioh the sohoolhouse was originally intended. At the 
present time however there are as many as UU pupils in one classroom, whioh was 
built for 35 pupils. And even this figure of Uk would of necessity be increased 
to 50 pupils were it not for the fact that the Westlands Improvement Association 
has lent its Community Building to the Town for school purposes. 

There is every reason to believe that this already congested condition will 
continue to increase with the natural growth of this community. 

During the course of its investigation the Committee felt that ho constructive 
report could be rendered without being able to place before the town some indica- 
tion of the probable cost of an addition to the present premises. For that reason 
the chairman invited two qualified firms of architects to submit rough plans and 
estimated costs, namely, A. S. Haines Associates of Fitchburg, and Ashton & Huntress 
of Lawrence. Their reports show that a suitable addition of four rooms could be 
constructed at a cost of between $31,000 and £37,000, the former figure to include 
a wooden structure equiped with desks, blackboards, etc. and a manually operated 
heating system; the latter figure to include similar equipment but brick faoing 
on both the old and new buildings, and modern i ring the now inadequate heating and 
ventilating system, and toilet facilities, in the old building. 

79 



In the circumstances therefore of the overcrowding of the present class- 
rooms to such an extent as to make any kind of individual attention by the teaoher 
impossible and the fire hazards inherent in such a situation, this Committee is 
of the opinion that there is a definite need for an addition to the present 
sohoolhouse in precinct 6, and recommends that a building committee be appointed 
immediately to procure plans and figures to be presented to the Town at a meeting 
to be called by the Moderator at the earliest possible moment.

REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF ANIMALS 

Board of Selectmen 

Gentlemen: 

I herewith submit my twenty-sixth annual report of work done by this dept. 
for the year 19^0 under the direction of the Division of Live Stock Disease 
Control, State Department of Agriculture. The annual inspection of cattle, sheep 
and swine is completed and a detailed report has been sent to the above mentioned 
department. 

Eight stables have been reported where the cattle were not under state 
supervision for the tuberculin test. There are 190 stables where 649 dairy cows, 
247 young cattle, 16 bulls and 2 oxen are kept, making a total of 9IU head which 
is 11 less than last year • There is an increase of 4 dairy cows and, for the 
first time in several years, there are 2 oxen in town. There is a decreased* 
9 young cattle and 8 bulls. There are 727 swine, 400 of which belong to two 
different owners, also 14 sheep and 81 goats, which is an increase of }2 over last 
year. 

The tuberculin test was applied to all cattle during the year and none re- 
acted which is the first time the test has been applied with this result. Several 
cattle were quarantined that came from without the State without the proper test 
charts. 60 dairy cattle, 4 beef cows, 2 bulls and 2 oxen were brought into the 
town under State permits, all but one were released after identification and proof 
of satisfactory test for tuberculosis and Bangs abortion disease. One cow was 
ordered slaughtered because she reacted to the Bangs disease test. 

All investigations ordered by the State authorities have been attended to 
and reoorted. 

Thirty dog bite cases were investigated and 23 dogs were quarantined for the 
required two weeks observation period, but all were released at the end of that 
time as no rabies developed.

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 

To the Citizens of Chelmsford » 

Monthly meetings have been held at the Centre Town Hall except during July 
and August. Members of the board have assisted the Selectmen by investigating 
and reporting upon all applications for permits for the erection of new buildings 
and additions to other buildings, and also to the use of such buildings as defined 
by the toning by-laws. 

The board sponsered the by-law which was passed at the last annual town meet- 
ing authorising the selectmen to number the buildings on the various streets in 
town. 

Three applications were received during the year for the subdivision of as 
many tracts of land. Public hearings were held after all abutters were notified 
and these plats were finally approved in whole or in part after certain require- 
ments as to street grades, bounds etc. were complied with. 

Operating under the authority of Section 81F of Chapter 211 of the Acts of 
1936, a planning board has considerable control of subdivision of land. 
Let us consider who is interested in this matter of subdivision control. 

1. There is the average owner. He envisions his land subdivided 
and sold in house lots at a substantial benefit to himself. This 
may be accomplished by the sale of acreage to a professional sub- 
divider or the aoreage owner may himself undertake to subdivide and 

sell his property. If the restriction of control operates to delay 
or prevent such subdivision the acreage owner will be inclined to 
deem it adverse to his interest. 

2. There is the subdivider. He is likely to be a professional in 
his field and an important instrumentality between the acreage 
owner and the ultimate buyer. 

3. There is the speculative builder. It is more common now to 
find the subdivider and speculative builder to be the same person. 
In any event, if control is exercised to the point of greatly re- 
duced profit, then his interest is destroyed. 

U. There is the building contractor. He will appear in the picture 
when the ultimate home buyer, having chosen a site, seeks the con- 
tractor for the construction of a home. 

5. The last in the chain of direct interest is the ultimate home 
buyer. When control has been responsible for costs to be raised 
too high the home buyer will be disoouraged. 

6. The Community— that is, the neighbors or neighborhood — and 

7. The Municipality — that is, the public upon whom in the last 
analysis will fall the costs of present mistakes. 

As members of a Planning Board we have to keep in mind the seven interests 
which are outlined and balance against the personal interests of the group 
the general interests of the Community and the Municipality. 

One of the greatest mistakes in the past is the undertaking of subdivisions, 
largely created on paper and sold by high pressure sales methods with resulting 
multiple ownership in some cases, in acres not suitable or at least not ripe for 
residential use. 

The unfortunate worker who has relied upon verbal pictures and promises of 
the land salesman finds himself holding title to a piece of land, the only approaoh 
to which is a street laid out on paper. This town has several such subdivisions 
oreated some years ago, which have resulted in tax sales of a portion of the 
property with the resulting lack of revenue and probably actual financial outlay 

81 



in the enforcement of the tax liens. 

The authority given our boards under Seetion 81F to "require suoh provision 
for street development and utilities as in its opinion will justify the subdivisio 
is an important tool in our hands to encourage development which is likely to be 
beneficial to all of the seven interests above referred to.

During the last of January 1940 * recession in private industry ooupled with 
a tremendous lay off coming a little later, of W.P.A. employees brought about 
an acute situation in the town of an excessive amount of employable men who were 
out of employment and on the relief rolls. 

It was decided by the Board of Public Welfare to start a work relief program 

83 



in the town whereby men on relief rolls would work for cash on a budget basis 
under the direction of Supt. Taylor of the Town Highway Dept. This plan was put 
into operation April 1 19U0 and proved to be a great success. One of the most 
important projects undertaken by our own looal work relief program was the wid- 
ening and deepening of Beaver Brook from Central Square to where Beaver Brook 
empties into Hales Brook, a distance of approximately three quarters of a mile. 
This project received the cooperation of the Board of Health and when completed^ 
eliminated a long standing controversy of the pollution in Beaver Brook. 

It is my opinion the petitioners to abate the nuisance, are fully satisfied 
with the results obtained.

From the above summary of work performed the oitisen can readily appreciate 
that there was indeed some value received for relief given during 19U0 , a quota 
of ten enrol lees were placed in the C.C.C. 

The outlook for I9I4I is somewhat brighter in the relief situation with the 
defense program and a boom in private employment about to ooour. 

Concerning Old Age Assistance, it is my understanding that there is a con- 
centrated effort being made in the State Legislature to abolish the law that 
compels children to support their aged parents if able. If and when this law 
is abolished the various cities and towns can expect a tremendous increase in 
Old Age Assistance which will result in increased taxes in the respective cities 
and towns. 

I take this opportunity to thank the Board of Public Welfare and other town 
officials as well as many private citizens for their splendid cooperation during 
the past year. 

Respectfully submitted

FIRE ENGINEER'S REPORT 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen 
Chelmsford, Mass. 

We have the honor of submitting herewith the report of the Board of Fire 
Engineers for the year 19^0. The Board was organized as follows: 

Harry L. Shedd Chief 
John W. Dixon Asst. Chief 
John M. Kemp Asst. Chief and Clerk 

The Board reappointed as distriot chiefs the following: 

Distriot No. 1 W. T. Johnson 

District No. 2 Jos. D. Ryan 

District No. 3 Walter Edwards 

District No. U Henry G. Quinn 

Distriot No. 5 Charles House 

These men have now served a period of years, and together with their ability 
have gained experience which makes them valuable servants of the town. There 
have been few changes in the roster, so that the organization of the Department 
is a smooth working machine with a personnel of loyal and efficient men, devoted 
to their work. 

We have made repairs to the equipment whenever needed so that all the ap- 
paratus is in first-class condition and one of the oldest pumpers in a test far 
exceeded the requirements of the Board of Fire Underwriters. The Fire Alarm 
system has been thoroughly overhauled and the sending mechanism at both the North 
and Centre stations has been renewed and brought up to date. With the system of 
Telephones and extensions in each fire station, it makes every householder with 
a telephone a potential fire alarm box. As some one is delegated to answer the 
phones day or night, the Department is better equiped than ever to render a 
prompt response to every alarm. Several new boxes have been installed, and cards 

92 



giving the box numbers and locations have been distributed in every district. 

We have endeavored in every way to promulgate preventive measures, and this 
•work is reflected in the fire losses being greatly reduced. The Department has 
answered 74 alarms of fire and responded to calls in neighboring towns with 
whom we have maintained friendly relations for mutual assistance. 

We have rendered every assistance possible to the Fire Warden, and have helped 
to extinguish a number of grass and brush fires. 

We have received hearty cooperation when needed from the other town depart- 
nents, and especially the Police Department, which assistance we gratefully 
acknowledge. 

Respectfully submitted,

A certificate of completion of work was issued in January, 1940. All bills 
were then in and had been approved by the Federal Resident Engineer Inspector 
and the Travelling Engineer Inspector, and were audited by the Federal Auditor, 
i The total of all bills for construction and equipment was #105, 249*13, divided 
as follows i 

General contract and extra orders #90, 550*03 

Advertising 193.62 

Architects fees 6, 271.06 

Supervision 1,696.00 

Express, telephone, postage 52.65 

Equipment 6,485.77 

Total #105,249.13 

Two bills of Louis Marion and S n, the contractors, were unpaid, one for 
#453*22 and one representing the 10?$ retained for 60 days after the completion 
of the building, amounting to #9,055. 

The necessary papers were forwarded to the New York office of the P.W.A. 
and were approved, and sent on to Washington with the claim for the balance of 
the U5% of the addition cost, representing the share of the Federal Public Works 
Administration. Here, on a technicality, a bill amounting to #771.06, which had 
been paid after having been approved by the Federal Inspectors, was thrown out, 
and a final payment made which brought the total of Federal aid to #47,013.65 
Marion's bill for #9,055 was paid, but the one for v 453.22 exceeds the money 
available by the amount of ^235. t|8

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE ADAMS LIBRARY 



The Trustees of the Adams Library organized for 19140 with the following 
officers j 

Chairman Mr. Edward B. Russell 

Secretary Miss Miriam E. Warren 

Treasurer... Rev. Charles W. Henry 

Mrs. Ida A. Jefts was reappointed librarian, Mrs. G. W. Peterson, assistant 
librarian, and Miss Edith Alcorn assistant in the children's room. 

A new work table has been purchased for Miss Alcorn's use in her work with 
the Nature and Hobby Club. The children meet at the library on Saturday after- 
noons and have shown great interest in the handicraft taught by Miss Alcorn. 

Board meetings have been held at the usual intervals. The chief problem 
is how to keep the library up to date, how to meet the demand for the newest 
books by the increasing number of borrowers, and at the same time keep within 
our appropriation.

SELECTMEN'S REPORT ON PURCHASE OF AUTOMOBILE TRUCKS 

We wish at this time to oall to the attention of the taxpayers of Chelms- 
ford, that in the Warrant for the Annual Town Meeting there are articles calling 
for the purchase of three automobile trucks to replace three that are most absolei 
namely, in the Highway Department, a new three ton truck to replace a 193U Inter- 
national two ton, end a new two ton truck to replace a 193U Ford, one and one halJ 
ton truck. 

We recommend heavier trucks for the reason that a heavier truck will stand 
up better than a lighter truck in a heavy snow storm. Invariably the rear end of 
a light truck will break and at present we are confronted with repair bills which 
are staggering each year. 

The truck now used by the Forest Fire Department is a 1927 model truck, we 
do not feel that any comment on this is necessary, the truck having been in use 
for almost fourteen years.

July 3, 1940 

To the Board of Selectmen 

Mr, Karl M. Perham, Chairman 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts 
Gentlemen: 

I submit herewith my report of an audit of the books 
andaccounts of the Town of Chelmsford for the period from August 
24, 1938, to April 6, 1940, made in accordance with the provisions 
of Chapter 44, General Laws. 

This is in the form of a report made to me by Mr. Herman 
B. Dine, Assistant Director of Accounts. 

Very truly yours, 

Theodore N. Waddell 

Director of Accounts 
TNW:MC 



126 



Mr. Theodore N. Waddell 

Director of Accounts 

Department of Corporations and Taxation 

State House, Boston 

Sir: 

As directed by you, I have made an audit of the books and 
accounts of the town of Chelmsford for the period from August 24, 
1938, the date of the previous audit, to April 6, 1940, and report 
thereon as follows: 

The financial transactions of the several departments receiv- 
ing or disbursing money for the town, or committing bills for coll- 
ection, were examined and verified by a comparison with the books 
and records in the offices of the town treasurer and the town 
accountant. 

The books and accounts in the accountant's office were exam- 
ined and checked. The ledger accounts wereanalyzed, the recorded 
receipts being compared with the treasurer's cash book and the 
payments being checked with the treasury warrants. The paid 
vouchers on file were examined and checked to the classification 
book. The appropriations, transfers, and loans authorized, as 
recorded on the ledger, were checked with the town clerk's records 
of financial votes passed in twon meetings and with the finance 
committee's authorizations of transfers from the reserve fund. 

A trial balance was taken off proving the accounts to be in 
balance, and a balance sheet, showing the financial condition of 
the town as of April 6, 1940, was prepared and is appended to 
this report. 

The books and accounts of the town treasurer were examined 
and checked with the town accountant's books. The receipts, as 
recorded, were analyzed and compared with the departmental records 
of payments to the treasurer and with other sources from which 
money was paid into the town treasury. The payments were checked 
with the selectmen's warrants authorizing the treasurer to dis- 
burse town funds. 

The cash balance on April 6, 1940, was proved by actual count 
of the cash in the office and by a reconciliation of the bank bal- 
ances with statements furnished by the banks of deposit. 

The payments made on account of maturing debt and interest 
were compared with the cancelled securities and coupons on file 
and with the amounts falling due. 

The savings banks books representing the investment of the 
trust funds in the custody of the town treasurer, the treasurer of 
the library trustees, and the treasurer of the insurance fund com- 
missioners, were examined and listed.lhe income was proved and the 
disbursements were verified. 

The records of tax titles held by the Town were examined. The 
amounts added to the tax title account were compared with the 
collector's records, the recorded redemptions were verified, and 
the tax titles on hand were listed, reconciled with the town 
accountant's ledger, and checked with the records in the Registry 
of Deeds. 

127 



The books and accounts of the town collector were examined 
and checked in detail. The taxes outstanding at the time of the 
previous examination were audited, and all subsequent commitment 
were proved to the warrants issued for their collection. The 
recorded receipts were compared with the payments to the treas- 
urer and with the town accountants books, the abatements were 
checked with the assessors 1 records of abatements granted, and the 
outstanding accounts were listed and reconciled with the ledger. 

The accounts of the town collector, as collector of taxes 
for the East Chelmsford Water District, the South Chelmsford Water 
District, and the North Chelmsford Fire District, were examined 
and checked, and the payments to the treasurer were compared 
with the amounts recorded on the treasurer ! s cash book. 

The outstanding accounts were verified by mailing notices 
to a number of persons whose names appeared on the books as owing 
money to the town and from the replies received it appears that 
the accounts, as listed, are correct. 

The records of licenses and permits issued by the town clerk 
and other departments were examined and checked, and the payments 
to the state and the town were verified. 

The surety bonds of the town officials required by law to 
furnish them for the faithful performance of their duties were 
examined and found to be in proper form. 

The records of the sealer of weights and measures, of the 
school and public welfare departments, and of all other depart- 
ments collecting money for the town or committing bills for 
collection, were examined, checked, and reconciled with the 
treasurers and the accountants books. 

There are appened to this report, in addition to the balance 
sheet, tables showing a reconciliation of the cashof the town 
treasurer and of the treasurer of the library trustees, together 
with summaries of the tax, tax title, and departmental accounts-, 
as well as tables showing the condition and transactions of the 
trust funds. 

While engaged in making the audit, cooperation was received 
from all the town officials, for which, on behalf of my assistants 
and for myself, I wish to express appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Herman B. Dine 

Assistant Director of Accounts 

HBD:MC

REPORT OF SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



To the Citizens of the Town of Chelmsford: 

We herewith submit the report of your School Conmittee for the year 
ending December 31, 1940* 

The report of the Superintendent of Schools and of the Principal of 
the High School are appended, and your Committee requests that you care- 
fully read these reports, as they show in irore detail the work that comes 
under the direction of this Committee. 

The high standard required by the Committee has been maintained 
throughout the past year in your schools. This fact justifies the time, 
thought, and study given to the qualifications of each candidate before 
appointment to a teaching position in the schools of Chelmsford. The 
appointment of a teacher is a very important and by no means easy task. 
We thank our teachers for the loyalty and cooperation so freely given to 
help us to maintain this standard. 

The personnel of the janitors remains the same, with the exception 
of the late John Boutilier, janitor of Quessy School at West Chelmsford, 
who passed away during the past summer. Mr. Boutilier 1 s faithful work 
as janitor, as well as his pleasant and courteous treatment of all with 
whom he came in contact, endeared him to us all. The janitors are 
commended for the efficient care that they have given the school build- 
ings. We take this opportunity to assure them that their work is 
appreciated. 

The Parent-Teachers Associations have been a help in the interest 
they have shown in school problems. We thank them for the pleasant and 
friendly cooperation they have extended. 

During the past summer vacation the boy's toilet at the Highland 

Avenue School was remodeled. Equipment taken from the old high school 

was installed, a new cement floor laid, and sheet steel partitions 
provided, making an up-to-date toilet which was very badly needed in 
this building. The contract was let to George Gagnon of North Chelmsford, 
who completed the work to the satisfaction of the Committee. The 
remaining windows in the building were also weather stripped, which 
should mean a saving in fuel. 

As was explained in the report of last year, the crowded condition 
at the Westlands School necessitated the provision of more class room 
space. The Westlands Improvement Association, with the civic pride 
and public spirit with which this organization is imbued, came to the 
front with the offer of the use of their Community building without 
charge to the town for school use. The school department provides heat 
and janitor service when the building is in use by this department. On 
January 17, 1940, the building was opened as a first-grade class room, 
in "harge of Miss Rita Foley as teacher. While this has been a very 
satisfactory temporary solution, it is obvious that this arrangement can 
not go on indefinitely. At the last annual town meeting, a committee 
of four was named to -work in conjunction with the school committee to 
investigate the advisability of an addition to the Ytestlands school, 
said committee to make a full report of its findings at the next annual 
town meeting. The Committee appointed by the Moderator was Clifford 
Hartley, C. Luther Cashin, Clarence G. Audoin, and Donald A. Dunsford. 

160 



The operation and maintenance of the public school system is the 
most important business that any town or city is called upon to carry on. 
The children must be provided with an adequate education, the cost of 
which must be kept within reasonable lL-r.its. The tax rate must be kept 
constantly in mind. In other words, it is the duty of the school 
officials to see that one hundred cents 1 worth is received for every 
dollar expended. This is the constant endeavor of your Committee, 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN A, Mc ADAMS

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT 



To the School Committee: 

My thirteenth annual report is hereby submitted to you and to the 
oitizens of Chelmsford. 

TEACHERS 

At the end of the year in June two teachers resigned before their 
marriage. For the position vacated by Jane McEnaney in East Chelmsford, 
Mary E. McGauvran of Lowell was chosen, and for the position held by 
Charlotte L. Lyons in the McFarlin School, Maybelle Birtwell of East 
Chelmsford was appointed* Both are graduates of Lowell Teachers College 
and hold the degree of B.S.E. 

In August, Beatrice Hoar of the High School faculty was elected to a 
position in the Morey Junior High School in Lowell, and resigned, Thi* 
position was filled by transferring Isabell M. Doyle from the Quessy 
School to the High School, and for the Quessy position, Eleanor M. 
Donahoe, a 1940 graduate of Smith College, vas selected. 

In a circular of recent date entitled, "Standards for the Appoint- 
ment of Teachers," Walter F. Downey, Commissioner of Education, says: 
"As is the teacher, so is the school. The merit of each teacher is the 
controlling factor in determining the quality of the school. Qualifica- 
tion of the teacher for the position, therefore, should be the sole basis 
for the appointment, retention, and promotion of teachers. The best 
qualified teacher for each position is the best assurance that the 
interests of the children and citizens are being properly protected." 

In line with this educational principle my report of 1928 said: 
"By far the most important factor in any school system is its corps of 
teachers", and the report of 1929, "In the long run the choosing of 
teachers is the most important task school committees and superintendents 
perform." 

For the thirteen years of my service in Chelmsford, the members of 
the school committees, both you of the present committee and your prede- 
cessors in office, have performed this duty carefully and conscientiously, 
always with full regard for the fact that the degree of excellence of the 
schools, the welfare of the children of the community, was at issue in 
every choice made. Appointments have not been made hastily, nor under 
pressure. The task often has been a most difficult one, an unpleasant 
one. The easy way would be to appoint quickly the candidate who brought 
the most pressure to bear. But the right way, -which is also the hard 
way, is carefully to weigh qualifications, to regard all angles of each 
situation, to ignore all considerations except that of securing for each 
vacant position the best candidate available. I commend you, and your 
predecessors, for the care and skill and devotion with which you have 
performed this task, and I congratulate the citizens of Chelmsford on 
their having such faithful servants in office.

SALARIES 

Beginning teachers, no matter how well trained, are not at the 
highest point of efficiency. Native aptitude for teaching is essential, 
a good education and scholarship are necessary, but many things must be 
learned by actual experience in the classroom. A teacher should -row 
in skill and power throughout active service; a teacher who does not 
improve from year to year is of doubtful value. Thus, after promising 
candidates for positions are secured, it is important that such condi- 
tions be maintained that they can continuously become better teachers. 
The teacher's salary should be not on a bare existence level, but on a 
cultural level, if he is to be a growing teacher. Is his salary such 
that he can live comfortably (not extravagantly), can dress in good 
taste, can enter the social life of the community, and can afford study 
or travel which will add to his effectiveness? If a man, can he afford 
to marry and raise a family, and live in a respectable manner and pay his 
bills while doing so? 

That salaries in Chelmsford have been low is clearly established by 
state reports and by investigations made by the Massachusetts Teachers 
Federation and by individual Superintendents. The last state report on 
salaries (1936) places Chelmsford in the lowest quarter of the 83 towns 
(not cities) over 5000 population. In the average salary paid elemen- 
tary teachers Chelmsford was 71st, in the average salary in high schools 
it was 73d for men and 69th for vomen. 

A year ago, Mr. F. E. Holt, Superintendent of Schools in Whitman, 
addressed an inquiry to the superintendents of these 83 towns, and 
obtained data from 63. He determined median salaries paid teachers in 
various groups: half the teachers in the group get more than the 
median, half get less. For teachers in grades 1 to 6 the median was 
found to be between $1400 and $1500. Except for one principal our 
highest salary in these grades is $1300. For grades 7 and 8 and in 
junior high schools, the median for women was between $1500 and $1600 
and for men between $1700 and 01800. Only one of our teachers in this 
group, a principal, receives the median salary. In high schools the 
median salary for vromen was between $1700 and $1800 and for men between 
$1900 and $2000. Again only one teacher in Chelmsford is receiving the 
median. 

Most towns operate on a schedule by which teachers through experi- 
ence or study, or both, receive yearly increments up to a stated maxi- 
mum. For the towns reporting such schedules Mr. Kolt found the median 
maximum for grades 1 to 6 to be between $1400 and $1500, for 7 and 8 and 
in junior high schools $1500 to $1600 for women and $1800 to $1900 for 
men; and in high schools $1800 to $1900 for women and $2000 to $2100 for 
men. "" 

The latest investigation was made by a committee of the Teachers 
Federation, who secured data from 278 cities and towns and reported 
under date February 21, 1940. This report shows the beginning and the 
maximum salaries actually being paid by these towns. Again a compari- 
son of Chelmsford with the towns of our approximate size and wealth 
shows that generally our salaries are low. This report is of interest in 
the special regulations cited for 49 cities and towns. Several have no 
schedule for men; one has a single salary schedule, regardless of school 
or grade; several pay additional salary, from $25 to v 200, for approved 
professional study or for holding a master's degree; several provide for 
super-maximum salaries of $100 to $300 above regular maximum; one pro- 
vides higher salaries for married men than for women or unmarried men, etc, 

163 



In the long run the quality of the teaching service in a town tend 8 
to be controlled by the reward teachers receive. We have good teachers. 
We would have them become better. It is a matter of good business to 
pay them such salaries that they can constantly improve. I urge a 
revision of the schedule to provide, first, higher salaries for men, and, 
second, recognition of study by either men or women which will lead to 
the master's degree. 

ENROLLMENT 

A table at the end of this report shows the enrollment by grades 
and by buildings on October 1, 1940, and also the enrollment in the 
elementary schools and in the High School for the last ten years. The 
number in the elementary schools has dropped from the peak enrollment of 
1265 in 1933 to 1097 in 1940, while the High School has grown steadily 
to the present enrollment of 527. In 1933 the McFarlin School and South 
Row, now combined with McFarlin, had 371 pupils; East had 166; Highland 
Ave. had 125; Princeton St., 277; Quessy, 129; South, 48; and Westlands, 
149. It may be noted that the South Chelmsford School has the same 
enrollment that it had seven years ago, Westlands is larger, and all the 
others smaller. Taken in conjunction 7/ith the amount of building in the 
Westlands the conclusion is obvious: added school room will be needed 
there as soon as it can be provided. 

TRANSPORTATION 

The number of pupils carried to school has increased from 671 last 
year to 688. A larger proportion of the High School students are carried 
than of elementary, which in part explains the increase from year to 
year. The table below shows the number transported in 1933 and in the 
last four years.

Four busses are used, each making three or four trips, and a fifth 
bus is held in reserve. The daily mileage is 2-29 miles. 

BUILDINGS AND EQUIPMENT 

Out of the regular school appropriation every year repairs are 
made to buildings and minor improvements, and equipment is replaced or 
additions made. In 1940 the boys* toilet at Highland Avenue was com- 
pletely renovated, using fixtures taken from the High School. That 
building needs painting badly. All the buildings will need the usual 
repairs to woodwork, plumbing, roofs, etc. and several rooms need new win- 
dow shades. There is one special need, which can be cared for out of the 
regular appropriation, in order to make effective use of equipment which 
has been furnished without cost to the town. The High School has a mov- 
ing picture machine, with sound attachment; Princeton St. and Highland 
Ave. have machines for silent films; McFarlin and East have lanterns for 
slides; and the purchase of such equipment is under consideration in 
other schools. Educational films and slides are offered schools on low 



16U 



rental terms by the Department of Education, colleges, and firms. 
Visual education is becoming increasingly helpful each year. To take 
full advantage of the equipment the schools now have, we should equip 
the High School hall and one classroom, and one room in each of the other 
buildings, with curtains which will effectually darken the rooms. For 
general classroom use shades should be translucent, buff or cream, so as 
to admit light when they are drawn to keep out direct sunlight, but for 
the purposes of visual education dark shades are needed* 

SPECIAL CLASS 

For many years the state has required towns under certain conditions 
to provide special instruction for pupils viio cannot profit by the usual 
classroom procedure. By means of a travelling school clinic the pupils 
who need this special attention are designated by a trained psychiatrist. 
Provided ten or more pupils in a town are recommended for a special 
class, the law is mandatory, the school committee shall establish a 
class under the regulations prescribed by the Department of Education. 
Of the 83 towns over 5000 in population all but ten have one or more 
special classes. The regulations include provisions that the membership 
shall not exceed 18 pupils, that the teacher be chosen from an eligible 
list furnished by the Department, and that a suitable room be provided. 

Towns of our size invariably have more than ten pupils -who need 
this special attention. Hitherto we have pleaded lack of a school room 
for our failure to establish a class. Now we have a vacant room in the 
McFarlin School, and the Department of Education has notified us that we 
are expected to comply with the law. The first steps are being taken in 
the process of opening a class. 

FINANCIAL SUMMARY 

An itemized statement of school expenditures is given in the report 
of the Town Accountant. The appropriation for 1940 v/as $113,085.00 and 
the expenditures were $112,837.17, divided as follows:

REPORT OF HIGH SCHOOL PRINCIPAL 



Mr, George S. Wright 
Superintendent of Schools 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts 

My dear Mr. Wright: 

I am pleased to submit herewith my eleventh annual report as princi- 
pal of Chelmsford High School. 

The total enrollment up to January 1, 1941 is as follows: 

Class Number of Boys Number of Girls Total 



Senior 


52 


Junior 


69 


Sophomore 


71 


Freshman 


66 



50 


102 


56 


125 


78 


149 


70 


156 



Total 278 254 532 

This total of 532 is twenty-five more than the all time high record 
of January, 1S40. It is interesting to note that while -there were nine 
more boys than girls last year, there are 24 more boys than girls this 
year. The indications for next year are that the enrollment will run 
over 550. 

Boys and girls of high school age should be in high school. It is 
believed by some that they should be retained in high school until they 
actually secure employment or are graduated. 

Our high school should adjust the courses in such a manner that 
each pupil will get the best educational program with which he can and 
will succeed. 

We face many serious problems as teachers in trying to carry out 
the above platform. 

(1) We have many pupils for whose needs our present high school as 
now equipped and constituted cannot provide. Special departments and 
classes should be provided for these individuals. 

(2) Irregular attendance with our large classes makes it physically 
impossible for the teachers to receive the maximum results that should 
be attained. 

(3) There are a few pupils who do not care to come to school. They 
are not interested in what there is here, but their parents make them 
come. 

Chelmsford High School has grown in number so much faster than it 
has progressed educationally, especially as far as the curriculum is 
concerned, that there is much to do before we can hope to give each 
pupil that type of education to which he is entitled.
